The relationship between Chelsea's manager Jose Mourinho and the club's billionaire owner, Roman Abramovich, has been the subject of intense speculation in recent months. Rumours of a rift between the two have been widespread and many believe that the Portuguese manager will be on his way out of Stamford Bridge despite having brought two league titles to the club during his reign.

A possible clue to his future intentions has been given by a recent purchase made by Mourinho at the Chiswick Porsche showroom on the A4. He has bought a top of the range Cayenne 4x4. A Chelsea tractor would be an appropriate enough vehicle for the Chelsea manager but according to a report in the Independent, Mourinho specifically ordered a left-hand drive. This has confirmed the belief of many that the dapper but controversial boss will be working on the continent come this September.

What his next management job might be remains unclear but can exclusively reveal it won't be at the local branch of Nandos.
